CNDS Fellow, Maurizio Mazzoleni’s EU Horizon 2020 project I-CISK has been selected for funding with an unprecedented score of 15 (out of 15)!
The project focuses on understanding the feedbacks between climate change and adaptation actions and is coordinated by IHE Delft Institute for Water Education. The project received a total of 5 million EUR of which about 4 million SEK will go to the department of Earth Sciences at Uppsala University. Maurizio Mazzoleni will be leading one of the work packages, developing, together with his team, new models including social and behavioural factors into climate services.
CNDS Fellow, Lars Nyberg awarded 3 million SEK to a three-year project on developing risk assessment methods for cloudburst damages
The proposed project aims to develop methods for assessment of damages and costs caused by cloudbursts in Sweden. Applied on cloudbursts, the hazard is represented by rainfall amount and - intensity and the resulting water level, while the vulnerability is determined by the assets in the area affected by the cloudburst, such as buildings and infrastructure. Geographical factors such as the shape of the terrain play a role because the topography determines where and how fast the water flows. The project results can be used as decision support for risk reducing measures and climate adaptation.
